There's always this lovely place on the infamous Blackbird Leys estate just outside Oxford. No dreaming spires here, just stolen mopeds!

Yours for 175K... The photos obviously don't do it justice

Blackbird Leys - where the bus drivers refuse to go after dark. :o

Just to prove there are still affordable home in the UK. See? What are you all moaning bout?
This is a delightful home, cosy, warm cos the neighbours set your house on fire every other night and theres a real close knit feeling in this village cos they all know each others business (like what day your giro comes so they can nick it).
PS I was actually going to buy one of these about four years ago for £4k (no joke thats how much they were) because myself and a few friends thought it would be a good place to hide dead bodies! Joke. No, we thought the council was going to knock it down and build on it a new development, befitting to the golf course they were thinking (or have) of putting there. Meaning they would pay us off a nice amount to buy the land (a lot of the houses round the few streets that make up this area are empty). Wish I had bought it now. it 10x the price it was four years ago.
Sorry to offend anyone who lives/grew up there.

Looks like the kind of place where dogs carry flick knives and junkies snort the white lines off the road.

Dicky, that would be funny if it weren't so close to the truth.

I don't live there anymore but I was born there, moved away 18months ago and I haven't missed the place to be honest. I do miss bumping into people who I've known for years but I've made new friends and still meet up with old mates. Might even know your cousin cos it is a small pond. Don't know about it being the dogs oysters, though.

This is my personal favourite especially as it needs modernisation. The wording also makes me laugh, "Offers over 375,000 REQUIRED".....now asking 365,000
